I thougt about asking a specific question about creo 2.0 keyboard shortcuts and decided to make it a sharing opportunity.
anyone wants to share his favourite most usefull keyboard shortcuts while working with creo ?
Ctrl +G to regenerate.
Center click for Done
anyone knows a shortcut for normal view/ isometric view?
If you type "map" into the Command Finder (upper-right), you can start the Mapkeys dialog box and create your own shortcuts. Engineers typically create mapkeys to automate common repetitive tasks.
For example, when working with large assemblies I often use "zz" to make the clicks Set Representation to> Exlude. I can select a part in my assembly, press zz and the part is excluded from the representation.
i just descovered some more shortcuts
ctrl + n - new file
ctrl+d - dimetric view.
Adam, i tried mapping keys but for some reason its not wirking - is there a short tutorial on how to do this right?
what if i want to override an existing shortcut, will it allow it?
Here are the default shortcut keys as defined in Creo Help.

Performs one of the following operations depending on the modeling context:
Accepts the changes and closes the Live Toolbar in 3D and assembly modes. Also clears the selection in the graphics window.

Locks or unlocks the current guide in 2D mode.

Switches between the Line and Arc Creation modes in 2D mode.
Prehighlights a set of surfaces on an active part using shape-selection rules based on the currently prehighlighted surface. Refer to the Creo Parametric Flexible Modeling Help for more information on shape-selection rules.
In this example I will create a Mapkey that toggles the display of all datum features (Planes, Axis, Points, & Csys):
Use your mapkey:
How to change the $F1 function (default F1:Help)? Creo asked me once but I clicked too fast to see the recording process. When I do the steps 1.-7. it says that it isn't possible to change the F1.
in daily use are
A1, A2, A3 & A4 for printing.
dxf, pdf & dwg to ouput files to local server.
NF & NB to set model view front or back as require.
BOM to create BOM table.
Find the tasks that you do regularly & need a few clicks to complete, then save yourself time with a shortcut (mapkey).
